About Us

Our mission is to deliver skills and knowledge to individuals or organizations that significantly increase productivity. NTI Business and Industry offers extensive training (of all kinds), meeting/conference room space, as well as detailed maintenance assessments.

How We Got Started

In 1996, a group of Human Resource Managers from industries in Northwest Arkansas collectively asked, “How do you raise the skill level of our workforce?”

Collectively, they pooled their resources and created Northwest Arkansas Industries for Education, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) consortium of area businesses and industries, with the purpose of creating customized, skill-based training that are designed to suit a wide range of manufacturing and business needs.

In the last quarter of 2015, Northwest Arkansas Industries for Education became NTI Business and Industry and offers short term industry certifications to meet the training needs in Northwest Arkansas and across the nation. In the past 21 years, this vision has become a reality. Now nationally recognized as a unique, hands-on industrial-technical training center, NTI Business and Industry delivers specialized, high-tech skills training.
